The school board said it notified all staff, students, and parents of the cases immediately and sent out letters to some families identifying them as a close contact.

“Only those staff and students who have been identified as a close contact will be notified and advised to stay home from school and quarantine for a period of 10 days,” a release from the TVDSB read.
